Pokémon GO: Moves to Use for Druddigon
The Dragon-type Druddigon has finally arrived in Pokémon GO as part of the Dragonspiral Descent event. While not the most powerful of its kind in the game, its Attack and Stamina stats are sufficient to test the new feature.
Check out our guide on how to defeat the 3-Star Raid monster before learning how to employ the cave dragon in battle. Not sure if Druddigon will spawn in the game after the event ends? The Dragonspiral Descent event runs through Sunday, December 12th, 8:00 PM local time.
If you already have a Druddigon in Pokémon GO, here are its greatest Fast and Charged moves.
- – Dragon Tail (Dragon)
- – Bite (Dark)
The typing STAB bonus from a Dragon-type Pokémon makes Dragon Tail the most potent of the two alternatives. While Bite is useful against Ghost or Psychic-type Pokémon, Dragon Tail is a hard-hitting move that opponents will not want to witness.
- – Dragon Claw (Dragon)
- – Night Slash (Dark)
- – Hyper Beam (Normal)
Again, Druddigon’s type and Dragon Claw are the best choices. While it has more options than the Fast Moves, it is still the only move Druddigon can learn with STAB damage, making it the most reliable. Night Slash is a unique way to surprise trainers, as most expect Druddigon to have Dragon Claw. Finally, Hyper Beam has the longest charge time, no super-effective targets, and no STAB damage.
